Description of the picture:
Rural holiday in the pub "Crescent" - David Teniers the Younger. 1641. Oil on canvas. 9Зх1З2
David Teniers the Younger (1610-1690) surpassed his parent and is believed to be a teacher. The best paintings of the artist were created in the 1640s, when he became the court painter of Archduke Leopold Wilhelm of Austria. Teniers assembled an art collection for the ruler and became its keeper. In this status, Teniers showed himself very clearly: he not only compiled the catalog of the collection, but also made small copies of many paintings, including valuable paintings by masters of the Venetian Renaissance school. He is credited with more than 2000 own works, although, of course, he was not so prolific. In the Dresden Gallery is stored nine works by the artist.
A significant part of the heritage of Teniers are numerous works with scenes of the life of the common people. The presented picture is a typical example of the Kermes genre popular in the Dutch art - a village holiday with an indispensable little musical ensemble, cheerful dances of the villagers, funny everyday scenes.
